HC Deb 11 April 1946 vol 421 c337W
56. Mr. Marples

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the shortage of midwives at the Highfield Maternity Hospital, Wallasey; and, in view of the fact that it may be necessary to refuse maternity cases, if he will take immediate steps to provide the needed staff.

Mr. Isaacs:

My Local Officer has received a copy of a letter dated 4th April from the Wallasey Town Clerk to the Ministry of Health and is now in consultation with the Matron regarding her present staffing requirements. I will write to the hon. Member as soon as a full report is received.
